Teaching Enhancement Certificate (TEC)


This is a daylong institute that encourages faculty to think about their teaching philosophy and explore it with respect to liberal arts education. Faculty will learn approaches for enhancing their lecture with low-risk, high-impact active learning strategies in order to enhance student engagement. They will also learn about student-centered course design, employing the framework of backward design, with a focus on the alignment of basic course elements, and aligning their formative and summative assessments to their course learning outcomes. Towards the end of the day, participants will get the chance to reflect on their teaching within the context of the day’s activities and discussions.
